Its been a while!

My my....I have been busy. Again.

We made our last trip out this past sunday. It was an awesome trip.
The leaves were changed where we went..and the campground was unbelievable. Its my new favorite. Although I don't know what it is like in the summer. It was actually kind of busy for fall. Mostly retired folks, enjoying their earned time off.
We rode bike 12 miles! There is an awesome bike trail connected to this park, and well, it was awesome. Fell in love with my bike again.
The hiking was supreme. Fun was had by all.

I'm 37 now. My husband keeps trying to tell me I am pushing 40...Then I remind him that he'll be turning 40 soon...he comes back with, "not 'til next year!" . January. ha.
My birthday was uneventful. I took care of my friends children overnight. We rented some movies and had some pop. We splurged. lol!

My thoughts on my weight loss journey?
well, I'm in a not so good place again in my brain.
My new goal is to lose 30 lbs in 3 years. 10 lbs a year. If I do it sooner than that? Good for me. If I don't? I'll still be on track.
I'm still doing the small things I was doing before, water...breakfast, healthy meals. But as far as moving more? I'm not going to sweat it yet. I want to change one thing permanently at a time. I know with exercise I can bust off 30 lbs in a couple of months...so lets get something concrete down first.
I gotta get that book out again, and just read it like CJ said, instead of trying to do everything it says. I'm just gonna read it.


Its going to be a busy few weeks ahead. I'll be sparse, but you'll all be in my brain still!

    You're just barely over 35. Haha. Tell your hubby to take a hike. That way HE moves more and that's a start. Giggle.

    I'm glad you blogged, cutie. You just have to keep showing up here. Wait for your rebel child to agree to do what your good girl wants her to do. It will happen. In the meantime, you really don't have to do a single thing that book says. Just read, baby, read! :)

    Thanx for stopping by my blog. A morsel? It was a nasty, evil morsel, huh. I'd be ashamed of my bad behavior this morning, but it was FAR too fun!!!

    You've set yourself some good bare minimum baseline goals and a generous time to allow yourself to do it. Sounds like a FABULOUS TRIP!!! :D Glad you had an enjoyable time on the bike and hiking. Sounds so fun... *jealous* :D

    P.S. -- Happy belated birthday. :) You are NOT pushing 40. Crazy hubby.
